Shrine Mont

A place of quiet, nature, and spiritual refreshment

Shrine Mont is a place where people are more important than things, where prayer and reflection, rest and recreation are more important than appointments and tasks. It’s a place where people give thanks to God for his creation—from the beauty of the streams, flowers and wildlife which are at home here, to the people who come to this place to celebrate being part of the family of God.

The Virginia House (formerly known as the Orkney Springs Hotel) is listed in the National Register of Historic Places and was purchased by Shrine Mont in 1979. With its white clapboard structure and tall, green-shuttered windows, the Virginia House is four stories high. The 96,000 square-foot structure was built in 1873 and restored in 1987. At that time, the common areas, meeting rooms and dining facilities were renovated.

Due to COVID concerns, St. Thomas Church will NOT hold a 2022 Retreat at Shrine Mont  
Sunday, May 1, 2022
We hope one day to return to Shrine Mont and hope that you may then join us for our "Annual" St. Thomas Church Retreat. Take time to rest, reflect, read, and share fellowship with other St. Thomas Parish families
